Don’t count your chickens before they’re hatched

I’ve started the celebration too early. Unfortunately connection between a Raspberry Pi and my mac stopped working. I was looking for a reason for several hours and tried almost every possible configuration. I am lucky because when I was a kid, I used to use linux as my operating system, so white letters on black background hadn’t scared me off 😉

To make things working again I had to turn off the dhcpcd on a R-Pi and set everything with the static values. That was the first step. After making the boards connected I couldn’t reach any outside-local-network servers – that was a problem related to DNS. I was setting everything up using this instruction:  but one thing was missing. The blog post might be a little outdated and some things in  the Raspbian may have changed – my resolv.conf (responsible for resolving hostnames) was empty. I had to add a  DNS related line in  my /etc/networking/interfaces file:

auto eth0
iface eth0 inet static

Now my raspberry Pi has an internet connection and I can finally start some serious programming 😉
See you soon!

ps. Connecting Raspberry Pi with an ethernet cable to a Mac is not a piece of cake 😉
